# Bitumen Density Calculator

Bitumen is also called as Asphalt or Asphalt Cements. It is a sticky, black and highly viscous semi liquid/semi solid form of petroleum. It is extracted from the natural deposits. It is mainly composed of highly condensed Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons. The density of Bitumen/Asphalt is approximately equal to 1 tonne per cubic metre at 20 degree Celsius, which is exactly the same as water. Use our online Bitumen Density calculator to find the asphalt density.

Bitumen is also called as Asphalt or Asphalt Cements. It is a sticky, black and highly viscous semi liquid/semi solid form of petroleum. It is extracted from the natural deposits. It is mainly composed of highly condensed Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons. The density of Bitumen/Asphalt is approximately equal to 1 tonne per cubic metre at 20 degree Celsius, which is exactly the same as water. Use our online Bitumen Density calculator to find the asphalt density.

#### Formula:

Density of Bitumen / Asphalt = (W2 - W1) / (W3 - W1) - (W4 -W2) Where, W2 = Weight of Pycnometer with Bitumen W1 = Weight of Empty and Dry Pycnometer W4 = Weight of Pycnometer with Distilled Water and Bitumen W3 = Weight of Pycnometer with Full of Water at Temperature 25°C

### Example:

Find bitumen density.
Given :
Weight of Pycnometer with Bitumen = 23 g
Weight of Empty and Dry Pycnometer = 14 g
Weight of Pycnometer with Distilled Water and Bitumen= 50 g
Weight of Pycnometer with Full of Water at Temperature 25°C = 60 g

#### Solution:

Asphalt Density = (23 - 14) /[ (60 - 14)-(50-23)]
= 0.4737
